“A true gem”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

A true architectural and social history gem . It is almost "magical" to wander round this village and take in the discoveries that appear around almost every corner . It may be 150+ years old but it still has a vibrant personality!

“Saltaire Mill / Hockney”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Brilliant! The whole building and art gallery are wonderful. Both the salt cafe and the upper floor restaurant are excellent. (Try the hot chocolate in the Salt cafe - best ever tasted, in my opinion). Fantastic art bookshop and modern designer interiors shop. A day out in itself. Entrance is not well signposted though.

Reviewed 21 August 2014

Although we had travelled in the area before this was our first visit. A planned flying visit turned into more than half a day.

“Saltaire - World Heritage Village”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Saltaire is a complete experience - A real life living village steeped in social history, the Mill that is the heart of the village is a wonderful museum with tea room, Titus Salt when building the Mill built a Village for his workers. He cared enough to build for his workers hospitals, wash houses, churches, Alms housesshops etc etc. Walk the streets of Saltair (named after his family : Ada Street, Mary Street etc) and see the mix of housing for workers, middle managers and managers of the Mill. Before you visit, check out the Saltaire web site which has ooodles of info for the visitor.
